"Show me your Shelves" Performance by Jennifer Harge

In a rare constellation, the exhibition Show me your Shelves! realizes an artistic dialogue between black artists from Germany and the US. The show brings together four artists reflecting on existing common structures, experiences, as well as differences between German Afro-Diasporic cultures and lifestyles and African American perspectives. The exhibitions present installations, films, sound and performance pieces in different branches of the Detroit Public Library.
In this exhibition: Dancer, performing artist and educator Jennifer Harge invite visitors into her performance specially developed for the Detroit Public Library’s Parkman Branch. Her approach to form combines the multiplicity of her black and queer identities with her training in postmodern dance. Her performances are embedded with specific black vernacular gestures, codes, and rituals as a way of subverting postmodern obscurity.
